Ah, sorry about the link.  One of Iracing staff mentioned the below in Season 3 build (not his entire thread). Just an FYI in case it affects us or if you were not aware.  thanks again. 

"With the Season 3 release, currently planned for the week of June 6th, we will be changing how the various /Login and endpoints expect user credentials to be submitted. This will affect any 3rd party applications which authenticate with the website, including /data. The current login endpoints submit the password in plain text over HTTPS (encrypted in transit).

With the Season 3 release, these endpoints will begin sending the password as a Base64 encoded string (still transmitted via HTTPS) using the following steps."

I tested today in iRacing Alpha, which is the version expected to be released to members in the future. I didn't observe any issues, so it's probably going to be fine.
